Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Don't like '88? Well, there's always today's anniversary show from '77

Having gone through the 88 Byrne show, I thought I'd back it up a few years.

http://www.archive.org/details/gd1977-04-23.sonyECM99a.hopkins.minches.83685.flac16

Springfield, MA (like one reviewer said: If you've never been there, you're lucky...not the prettiest place you'll ever see, that's for sure). I've had the SBD from this show for ages and always liked it, but after hearing this, I may like this AUD source at least as much. Very well done recording of an excellent show from one of the truly spectactular tours the boys ever put together.

Set 1:
Sugaree
Cassidy
Loser
New Minglewood Blues
Ramble On Rose
Me And My Uncle
Row Jimmy
It's All Over Now
Scarlet Begonias ->
Fire On The Mountain
Set 2:
Estimated Prophet
Bertha
The Music Never Stopped
Help On The Way ->
Slipknot! ->
Franklin's Tower ->
Around And Around ->
Goin' Down The Road Feeling Bad ->
Not Fade Away

Encore
One More Saturday Night

How can you not like a Scarlet>Fire as the first set closer? You can't, I say, you just can't.

I opted to begin in Boston 8 yrs earlier at the Ark with the burritoesque He Was A Friend of Mine moving on to a particularly nice little sandwich of
Dark Star>St. Stephen>It's A Sin>St. Stephen>Cryptical Envelopment>Drums>The Other One>Cryptical Envelopment>
Sittin' On Top Of The World>Turn On Your Lovelight


After I get thru that, I'll bid adieu to '69 and that energy and say hello to Keith, Donna and Wilford Brimley in Springfield. Just didn't want people to forget the other Mass show....

You know, it is so refreshing to know that there are still folks out there who remember the under-appreciated contribution of Mr. Brimley to the cause. Let us also not forget that of Mr. Nimoy.

Don't want to leapfrog Diane's post, so I'll just put my additions here.

This Row Jimmy is truly spectacular, IMHO. The ROR was also rather special. It's been awhile since I listened to this show and I'm very happy that I'm giving it another spin today. Also, Keith's organ work aint too bad here. And, please people, no comments about how Donna performed much better on his organ than he did. That would be gratuitous.

One funkalicious Fire. And yes, Keith is still manhandling his organ quite well. Bothering the Bishop, one might say. Or perhaps even Boxing the Pope.

Like my buddy says about this show, "It's like a sore d!ck. Ya just can't beat it."

Agree on the RoR, Jerry's in fine form and Keith is masterful on his organ.

That first cover for a Springfield show makes about as much sense as having the Manhattan skyline for a Winterland show.

SDH - I can't beleive I tuned in today and THIS is the post I saw. Haven't been here in quite a while.

This is one of my favorite '77 shows. It crackles in a way that I like my shows to crackle. Keith's organ is REALLY BIG. (that's what she said). Some call the show a precursor to what-is-to-come but I think it is one of the main highlights of the year. Along with 30 other shows. Actually I'm partial to this one, about 5 in May, most of June and 10/29.

It's a show that really stands out as a whole show and not just for the fucking Monster Morning Dew that ends the show. It's a total package.

Nice to be back.

Please be nice to me.

Don't worry about me. It's the other butt-monkeys around here you should be concerned with. I'll never say anything bad about anyone.


Unless they are a butt-monkey.
